Theia accessibility

Hi folks,

Our Code Editor is built upon theia and we have accessibility requirements. Right now, theia isn’t accessible with regards to WCAG guidelines(

Is there any efforts tracked upon/plans in place to make it theia fully accessible as per WCAG guidelines? Or, should we open a ticket for this to get the efforts started?


It would be great to create a tickeet for this and maybe also join the dev call (Dev Meetings · eclipse-theia/theia Wiki · GitHub) to present this? @planger

I created an estimate for this back in 2022. I’ve summarized my findings an in issue, see Improve Theia's Accessibility · Issue #13048 · eclipse-theia/theia · GitHub.

@JonasHelming @msujew ,

Will join the developer meeting & bring this up.
